|wow,first off you have to know that crates are a GOOD THING not a bad thing because dogs are natureall "den" orinated! so this isnt a bad thing...secound she is still a puppy and she will still have "accidents" you hav to count on that...when you crate here is it after yoy have fed her? if so 15-20 mins after food take her outside ! Unless you have a chewer like Cinderella is tghen you can have her out of the crate...then before bed take her outside (after naps) DO NOT PUT PAPER/BLANKETS,ANYTHING soft etc IN THE CRAte TRUST ME on this because this teaches her that this is an acceptible place to pee/poo (and despite what people say dog DO poop/pee in their den(crate) you just have to learn her "cue" (ie she will whine/snif the floor /circle the floor when she has to pee/poo but never ler her out of your site!!! wE HAVE A a 3 month old and she has had 4 accidents in the 2 weeks we have had (mainly our fault) but she cues she has to go! (sniffing the floor or barking) Don't give up anything and everything is possile) make sure to keep the crate as a "posstive" experince for her as this will become a safe place where she can go at bedtime, when your out, when you travel and so on!
D and Cinderella!!
